Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Snow Leopard" video after each step to draw at your own pace.
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw two circles as guides for the snow leopard's body. The circles don't have to be perfect. They're just guides. Pay close attention to the placement of the circles. Don't space them out too much.
Step 2: Draw a smaller circle above the left circle as a guide for the snow leopard's head. Notice how they overlap a little.
Step 3: Inside the snow leopard's head, draw two intersecting lines that will help you place the facial features later.
Step 4: Right below where the two lines intersect, draw an oval as a guide for the snow leopard's muzzle.
Step 5: Draw two small arcs on top of the head as guides for the snow leopard's ears.
